    So by getting subscriptions to Bleecher Reports Live and CBS All Access I can get six of the ten San Antonio games. The other four are on the NFL network and you have to have cable for that. Do I want to subscribe to those two services for a few months to catch those six games? Considering how much money I throw down the toilet on illegal weed and eating out all the time I can probably afford it for the two months it'll be on. So I'm considering it.

    Well, this coming Saturday at 8PM you can watch the San Antonio team play the San Diego team, San Antonio is the home team. It's on CBS broadcast, but after that good luck in finding the games. If you have the NFL network you're all set. LOL

    I know I'll be watching, because I'm always a sucker for watching the new start up football leagues. I have no idea why, I just do.

    They haven't announced the team names yet for next years XFL premier. I wonder what the Houston team will be named?

    The TV schedule for CBS Saturday night shows a pre-game show at 7PM and the San Antonio/San Diego game starting at 7:30.

    Sunday 0230 here in Naples.....San Diego Fleet at San Antonio Commanders will be televised on HD Channel 1. San Antonio is a Army / Air Force city, so how did they arrive at Commanders (Navy Rank)? Might've been better to call themselves the San Antonio Generals (USFL NJ Generals). Anyhow, looks like we'll be getting the games.

    The AAF's overtime rules are quite a bit different. Each team gets the ball only once, at their own 10 yard line, and they have to go for a TD they can't kick a FG. That's a quick overtime! LOL And if the game ends with neither of them scoring, it's a tie. I actually kind of like that.

    It will be something to watch between now and baseball. I like that lots of the folks are mic'd up. You can hear the coaches, and play calls. And they even had the replay official on air during the review of a challenge. Can you imagine the NFL doing that?!?! Sheeeeeyaat....that'd never happen!

    Yeah, I liked hearing the skyjudge talking to the ref on the field.

    Not bad for two expansion teams in an expansion league. The players have been coached pretty good, not a lot of penalties which is nice.

    Imagine if that LB'er that clocked the QB was named Clowney, Mack, Matthews.....geez! Especially if it was Brady on the receiving end. A fine and a 15 yarder. Poor fella got blasted.

    Well that first game was very fine, especially since the Texas team won. I think the TV crew need to work on the sound, but the product on the field was good.

    Now I have to decide what services to get for more games. Or if I subscribe for more games.

    It would be much harder to rig games with this.
